ACCELERATOR HIGHLIGHTS

The Accelerator Program began in early 2020 and will end in the Summer of 2021. 

Two batches of 5 to 6 start-ups each will benefit not only from the financial support of up to €48,000 per team but also from the mobility and industry expertise, strong business building skills of the Sharkbite and MotionLab.Berlin team as well as access to a high-end machine park and coworking space. We help you to solve a social problem and become part of an emerging mobility network in Berlin.

FINANCIAL SUPPORT

During the program, each founder of a team consisting of 2-4 members will receive a grant of up €2,000 a month. This will provide the team with the stability they need to focus on developing their startup!
